Abstract: Chapter abstracts Chapter 1 Religious women on faith, identity, citizenship and feminism Nyhagen and Halsaa introduce the main issues addressed in this unique, comparative study of Christian and Muslim women in Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom: religious faith, identity, citizenship, gender equality and feminism.
